Gruyer or Sheep's Milk Brie

After tasting some local cheeses last week in Napa, I looked into pictures from a Paris trip. I found the most incredible shop (pictured). It was a pungent heaven. So many classes I've never heard of and wanted to try. Locally, I like to keep my eye out for the same. Sonoma Cheese makes some wonderful California cheese as well as the Cowgirl Creamery (located in the Ferry Building).

We were sitting outside a cafe in Paris and noticed a dog waiting patiently on a motorcycle. The white haired pooch was comfortable wearing glasses. I thought that was strange. I guess you can say that French dogs are chic and bike ride, maybe they sip wine and eat a little fromage also, who knows.

Cameron Diaz Ad

I kind of like this ad I found on Flickr. How Madonna of Cameron Diaz. The Madonna I saw as my first concert experience at Dodger Stadium, many moons ago for the Who's That girl Tour. Go Cam.

Napa in the Fall

I went to Napa (and started in Sonoma) in a limo full of girlfriends last weekend. We sipped some well crafted wines at a handful of vineyards, ate wonderful cheese with sparkling wine at Domaine Carneros and brunched at Boont Fly in Carneros.

Fall is one of the most beautiful times to visit wine country. The leaves are changing and the weather is still relatively warm. I can't wait to go back again soon and discover more gems in Napa like Goose Crossing. Lucky me, the most stunning wine region is only an hour north of San Francisco!

If you're ever visiting San Francisco, Kara's are the best cupcakes in the city. I have been on a cupcake kick and they have the most delicious coconut cupcakes in my opinion. They have mini ones that keep me guilt free.
